I’m going to the Duran Duran concert at Harvey’s Outdoor Arena in Tahoe this weekend.
The 12-year old in me is REALLY excited.
I clearly remember laying in my bed, listening to Duran Duran songs with my sister when we were still in grade school.
Which brings me to my next subject.
She is coming with me to the concert and has arranged a really nice dinner and hotel stay for us at the MontBleu Resort, Casino and Spa.
You may recall that we’ve done this a few times before: Elton John (where we lost our nice stadium seats and I peeped my pants a little in the back of an uber); and Sting and Peter Gabriel’s Paper, Rock, Scissors tour (where I consumed an allowable amount of alcohol and DIDN’T get lost or pee my pants on the way back to our hotel).
This concert is DOUBLY exciting though.
Stargazer will be there with a friend as well.
He was interested in going and when he heard that I had tickets to the concert, he bought a pair for him and a friend.
So HE’S going too!
Personally, I hope that Duran Duran (4 original members out of 5 are back in the band) plays a few of my favorite songs:
- White Lines
- Electric Barbarella
- Ordinary World
- Hungry Like the Wolf
- Girls on Film
- Wild Boys
- and The Reflex
I seriously CAN’T WAIT for my short work week to end and to see Duran Duran in concert WITH MY SISTER!
It’s a dream come true, 30 years in the making!
